The Study on Motor-Function Evaluation of Upper-Limb Rehabilitation Robot Based on AHP
To solve the problem of real-time, quantification monitor on the restoration of motor function in hemiplegia after stroke, this paper proposed motor-function evaluation content for 5-DOF upper-limb rehabilitation robot based on traditional motor-function evaluation method, and then it constituted judgment matrix and calculated weights by Analytical Hierarchy Process, finally, established a synthetical evaluation model of motor function for upper-limb rehabilitation robot. This paper is the organic combination of operational research, rehabilitation medicine and robotics. Compare with traditional motor-function evaluation method, the new evaluation method is so simply and flexible that it greatly increases the reliability, validity and feasibility of evaluation, which has changed traditional evaluation methods into mathematical process. It is the new orientation in motor-function evaluation.
